Interdisciplinary Topics

Computer science is a broad discipline that touches many other disciplines. This is reflected by research in the area of interdisciplinary topics. These topics span from the very small, such as nanotechnology, molecular computing and quantum computing, to the very large, such as the impact of technology on society as a whole. Our faculty are actively researching in the areas intersecting with biology, education, physics and social science, to name a few.
